At Ten could be back at a different time
The Independent Television Commission has said it will issue a "legally
binding" direction to ITV to force the network to bring the eleven o'clock
news forward if it does not return to the News at Ten. In a statement
released just after 2pm, but an hour later than advertised because of
an over running programme, the ITC said, "Eleven o'clock is too late
for the News at Ten, so unless it goes back to ten o'clock we will taken
legal action to move it earlier than eleven. Eight would be too early
and nine would clash with a programme on the BBC called The Nine O'clock
News, so ten seems the best time to have it, hence the name News at Ten".

transport. "I'm going to buy everyone a train each", he said.
Millions of tax records have gone "missing" after
the Inland Revenue suffered a number of computer problems. But the people
at the tax office, who never get anything wrong, deny that there is a
problem. "Everything is in order here. We know what we're doing and
I can assure you that the only records unaccounted for are those of the
Labour peer Lord Levy".
The WHAT index closed 6 points down. The WHAT index.
WHAT index. No it's called the WHAT. I said it is called the WHAT.
WHAT is its name. No it's name is WHAT.
In yesterday's Daily Harbinger all the letter
